Create the basketweave by lifting every other strip on one half and placing another strip of bacon on top of the remaining strips. Place the strips previously folded up back down and fold up the alternating strips up and place another slice of bacon on top. Repeat these steps for both halves. Place the donut on top of the bacon and fold over to cover it in bacon. Bake for 15 minutes at 350° F.
